Meet Amigo! This handsome boy is a 1 year old lab and border collie mix, weighing about 30-40 lbs.  Amigo can't wait meet his forever family! 

Foster update: Amigo is doing great in his foster home.  He is very sweet and happy, and he made himself right at home already! He walks well on the leash, but like many shelter dogs, Amigo will need some work on leash training. He loves playing with toys and a good round of catch. He's already learning a bunch of commands--sit, wait, touch, come.  He is a VERY smart and trainable guy.  

In the house he loves to perch on the couch and stare out the window at the world going by. Amigo is doing really well with housetraining.  He loves running around with his squeaky toys and sit by the window and watch other doggies, squirrels, birds, and all that fun stuff outside.  Amigo also settles down very nicely in his crate when he's alone :)

Like his names says, Amigo is ready to be your best pal!  At one year old, Amigo still has plenty of puppy energy, so he will need lots of long walks and play time to burn off his energy.  As a young lab, he will show some puppy behavior, but he is ready to learn.  Amigo would love to be your walking buddy or running partner.  With his energy, he may need more than walks, looking for lots of playing and running.  On the other hand, this sweet boy has learned the importance of vegging out on the couch and long naps in the sun.  

As a social lab, Amigo gets along well with other dogs.  He has not been tested with cats yet, but is open to learning and training with you!

Get to know your new best bud, Amigo!!! Fill out and submit an application for this sweetheart!

Like most shelter dogs, Amigo may need a refresher on house-training. He is likely crate trained.  His foster says he is doing really well with house-training so far! So he is a great student!!

The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Charlotte at!

About Lucky Dog Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lucky Dog Animal Rescue is a group of highly motivated and highly dedicated volunteers. We spend countless hours making sure that wonderful dogs find loving forever homes. We don't do it for money -- we do it for the joy a dog can bring to its new family; we do it for our love of animals; and we do it to save lives!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoption events are held each weekend. A schedule of times and locations can be found at

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
